So, the other night before going to bed I watched a documentary called Waiting For Armageddon. It was an interesting look at Christians waiting for the End Times and how it impacts their attitudes toward Israel. I could go into all the weird things people said (such as a woman who claimed without Christianity we would not have jet planes). But I’ll recommend you chck it out on Netflix, it is one of their Watch Instantly movies. It’s thought provoking and a bit depressing. But what stood out to me most as I watched? The tremendous sense of disconnect I felt listening to all these Christians.
It was as if they were speaking of a God I had never met…a God I had little interest and desire to know. It was a bloodthirsty God who reveled in misery and destruction. Little was setting their God apart as one worth serving…and I found myself realizing that, long ago, I kind of was able to see thrugh their glasses. But not anymore. It felt like I was stepping into a foreign land to be honest.
